Scouting Alas Harum Agro Tourism

On one of the days, during my Bali trip, I scouted, Alas Harum, one of Lunga Tegallalang’s famous agrotourism project. Located 25-minutes from Ubud, Alas Harum is a stagnant show of multifarious Indonesian adventures, encompassed by splendid natural views. Upon reaching, I spent several minutes in the parking where stands Indonesia’s ‘largest’ Luwak statue. I was almost struggling to fit the entire cast in one frame. After multiple attempts, I headed towards the actual entrance.

It was a steep flight of stairs running downwards. As I was descending the stairs, a layered valley began to present itself. This place is encompassed, with so many fantastic adventures and photographic spots. There are swings, and nests and zip line – it’s a perfect playground for the adults.

As for the coffee, the local guide, Suta told me that these Luwaks are fed coffee cherries, along with, a balanced diet of other nutritious fruits.

Luwak Coffee Beans Alas Harum

Each day, as the Luwak poops, one of the staff members gets the excrement and separates the beans. The coffee beans are then cleaned, grounded, roasted, and processed, before turning it into the coffee powder. They also have an in-house cafe where you can order a cup of Luwak coffee. Apart from Luwak Coffee, Alas Harum also lets you sample a variety of other delicious coffee(s). While visiting Alas Harum is free, every activity you take up here comes with a price.

Coffee Sampling Alas Harum

After coffee sampling, I couldn’t help but sway on the Giant Jungle Swing. This giant swing was facing coconut trees and a deep conclave of layered rice paddies. Two Balinese men harnessed me, made me sit on the swing and made that first push. By the time, they pushed the swing the third time, I was hundreds meter from the land, screaming, full of thrill and adrenaline. At best, two people can swing together.

Veidehi Gite Alas Harum

For the most part, I found myself admiring the multi-levelled rice fields while sipping gourmet coffee from a balcony on the stilts. Other times, I was watching tourists participating in interesting activities. Some were taking pictures on the private terrace, some walking the glass floor, some inside the bird’s nest, some on the dancing bridge, and others posing at Pekak Brayut and the big gorilla face. Alas Harum, sure offers an unconventional way of engaging with exceptional scenery. The staff was friendly and helpful. I enjoyed the visit and bought the Luwak Coffee.

P.S. I visited Alas Harum as a guest of Indonesia Tourism Board, however, the views are my own.
